Comment Re:Just like being on-call (Score 1) 151

My biggest concern about being on call isn't so much the on call part, but the reliability of the underlying systems I'd be expected to support. I can deal with logging in outside of normal hours once a month or so to reboot some frozen service, but I would go insane if I had to spend all night every night manually running a really troublesome system.

Also, if I would be expected to respond immediately rather than waiting an hour if I choose that would be hugely more stressful. I'm not taking the work phone into the bathroom with me every time.
